Last week I had my first drum circle. It was amazing. The vice President of West Music came and led the group. I’m indebted to Mellisa Bloom. We had 26 people show up the first night, it was amazing.
Tonight was the second night, this time I had to lead. I was extremely scared that if I messed up I’d discourage the others for ever coming back. I think it turned out well though, although I do have to say it could have gone better. 29 people showed up tonight 13 came from last week. The age range is from 2-70.
Tonight was a night for all of us to get together and be with one another.
Hello my name is Sara Doermann.
I am working with the Iowa Makes Music Foundation in creating a drum circle in our community for all people from the age 11 and up.
To be in the drum circle you DO NOT need to have a musical background.
The hope of this drum circle is to open up music for everyone no matter who you are, to spread music throughout the community, and for all generations to come and make music together.
In the future I hope to have the drum circle play at the local care center and assistant living place, along with young people places.
Anyone can play the drums, music is a part of all of us, it’s who we are.
I got myself a plan. Instead of doing the barn dance, integrating musicians would have been hard, I’m going to do a hand drum soul circle.
anyone have any ideas for me???
Hi my name is Sara. My project is a little out there and maybe a little big. What I would like to do is to have a big old fashioned country dance. What Id really like to do is maybe some line dancing or something of the such.
The goal of this project is to get the younger and the older generations to come together and share in the music and to have fun. Its also a way to experience playing a different kind of music then Ive never played before and the same goes to my fellow classmates. I just hope i get enough interest in the community.
